Protein and kidneys

Protein is one essential nutrient for the body to maintain many organs’ health, but it causes some waste products during its metabolism.

Protein supplements for FSGS patients

According to the quality of protein, protein supplement is divided into two types: complete protein and incomplete protein. Complete protein, high-quality protein, can provide more essential animo acids and produce less metabolic waste, while incomplete protein is just opposite. Therefore, FSGS patients should choose the former type of protein supplements such as soy milk, fish, egg white, and so on. (Consult the doctor online to get such a food list in detail.)

How much protein to eat with FSGS kidney disease?

If their blood urea level is still normal and don’t have proteinuria, they are suggested to eat 0.8g/kg of protein every day.

If their blood urea level is normal but have proteinuria, they can eat 1.2g/kg of protein one daily.

If their blood urea level is higher than the normal value, they should reduce their protein intake to 0.6g/kg body weight every day.
